Pros

Tuition reimbursement is way above industry standard. I love not being in a cube. Most of the coworkers are great.

Cons

Don't ever sign up for task lead/software lead/CAL positions. You'll take on a bunch more responsibility, more stress, and more overtime. Think you'll be rewarded come PMP time? Think again. And now that OT is uncompensated you'll feel like an even bigger sucker. I'm probably not the only SWE checking out dice at work these days. The matrix organization is awful.

Advice to Management

It's time to let product line go. Every (or almost every) product is releasing off its own main now anyways.

    Pros

    pretty good job security so far, growing company even in a down market. interesting work and opportunity if you're not afraid of hard work. good people. meaningful work. decent new facilities.

    Cons

    kind of insane work schedule. get ready to work nights and weekends; maybe every weekend for months; sometimes you even have to work through holidays. poorly managed (run by aggies); kind of political.

    Advice to Management

    don't argue in front of the children; its a business, not a dissertation. spend more energy focusing on innovative approaches to customer needs and less energy trying to prove the product line theory using a business model that is clearly inappropriate for it.

    Pros

    Overwatch Systems offers good entry level opportunities and provides a range of experience. Management is very competent, and respectful of employees. The company was motivated and hungry for growth.

    Cons

    Overwatch Systems offered low compensation and little room for job growth. Continued management changes and reorganizations created a tense and inconsistent work environment.

    Advice to Management

    It would be beneficial to be more open and communicative to all of the employees about corporate goals and corporate finances.
